"Accountable's map continues to grow. I am pleased to announce the completion of the acquisition of Mastech Healthcare and Curastat which will be effective Sunday, August, 11th. Mastech Healthcare, based in Chicago, strengthens our existing nurse per diem and contract business in that important market. Curastat, based in Phoenix, will augment our presence in the travel nurse business, as well as in the local per diem market. In addition, this acquisition will provide AHS with a surgical/specialty staffing platform to strengthen our existing Chicago business. AHS plans to replicate this specialty product line in the company's other branch locations. Both companies will be rebranded to AHS and I am happy to report that the management teams and staff of each acquired unit will be joining AHS," stated Robert Adamson, Chairman & CEO of Accountable Healthcare Staffing.

This 'new beginning' which we are announcing today is all about focus. It takes great employees and great customers from Mastech Healthcare and Curastat and pairs them with AHS, where healthcare staffing is the core business. Additionally, it enables Mastech to focus on growing its core competency – IT staffing. Having worked closely with the leadership of AHS over the past several months, I am convinced that this is a great next step for all stakeholders – customers, employees and shareholders of both organizations."
